The trio – Sophie Hanney, Aneshka Moudry and Dominic Tatchell – at the Bishop’s Stortford secondary were among only 732 nationally to achieve the feat.

As with the earlier excellent International Baccalaureate Diploma results – which Hockerill sixth-formers take instead of A-levels – the standard places the school in an elite group in the country.

Principal Richard Markham said: “Once again, I am delighted to report that Hockerill students have performed well above national averages and have received results which they should be exceptionally proud of.

“GCSE success requires a huge amount of effort, perseverance and determination, and I am overjoyed with the phenomenal performance of the cohort and want to congratulate them and thank the staff who worked with them to achieve this standard.”

Sarah Pearson, vice principal (curriculum), added: “Maintaining such outstanding GCSE and IB Diploma results requires a commitment to excellence from the whole Hockerill community, and our congratulations go to the staff, parents and most of all the students. These results are the culmination of five years of the broad and balanced education we offer at Hockerill.”

Students who achieved more than seven A* and 9 or 8 grades were: Max O’Dare Balestra, Anna Box, Sophie Brixton, Charlie Brunt, Zara Byng, Cecilia Catmur, Dewi Chappel, Felicity Henry, Hannah Manderson, Amber Mays, Eleanor Milton, Amber Pearson, Timofey Popov, Sarah Wells, Adam Wilson and Carson Siu.

Charlie Brunt achieved six 9s (to add to his 9 in maths last year), two 8s, one A* and an A in additional maths.

Last year, Hockerill was named top of the Sunday Times national comprehensive league table and, thanks to the latest results, is looking forward to similar national plaudits later this year.
